diameter) unit is available in the new centre for devolatilising tests in combination with the TEX44αIII. The layout of trial extruders, first the TEX44αIII, then the TEX30α, is tandem. The first extruder is used for preparation of the mixture of polymer and solvent in order to simulate one of the more critical end stages of the polymerisation process. The TEX30α removes the solvents, volatile matter and monomer substances from the polymer solution. With this trial equipment, JSW can conduct trials for isolation processes (devolatilis- ing) and high-end compounding processes such as highly filled compounds, super engineering plastics, TPVs and biodegradable plastics, as well as reactive processing and recycling. “Customers will come to us with their most challenging material recipes and process param- eters, and we have the knowhow and the machines to meet the performance and quality that they expect”, says General Manager Jun Kakizaki. The new TEXenter also includes a TEX25αIII


laboratory extruder with special side feeder. The compact 26.5 mm diameter co-rotating twin-screw extruder had its European debut at K 2016 and is intended for product development of various compounds and masterbatches in engineering and high-performance thermoplastics. It is the smallest of nine models in the TEX-αIII series (up to 129.5 mm screw diameter) available in Europe. Cartridge heaters and a barrel clamping mechanism enable easy and rapid barrel section block changes. The total screw length/diameter (L/D) ratios can be selected from 42 with 12 blocks, 52.5 with 15 blocks, and 70 with 20 blocks. The machine accommodates vent or closed barrel


sections and side feeding of abrasive reinforce- ment materials, heat- or shear-sensitive additives and materials into the melt via a downstream barrel section. Wear resistant LSP-2 modified tool steel screws and barrels in N60S nickel based alloy made by JSW promise long life of barrel and screw (high wear and corrosion resistance) for various kinds of compounds containing abrasive and/or corrosive materials and additives. KraussMaffei Berstorff unveiled its ZE 28


BluePower laboratory extruder at K last year. It features numerous details of the ZE BluePower extruder series, including the 1.65 OD:ID ratio for large free volume, 4D and 6D housing elements for maximum flexibility and pressed-in liners for optimum wear protection. The company says that, together with the selected motor/gear combina- tion rated for high torque density, the extruder’s 28mm design achieves a substantially enhanced performance when compared to the previous
